Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Unscrew the base and attach "bat" wings and plastic strip as depicted on enclosed instructions. (Pictures and verbiage included). Screw on the back of set where cable would attach, set TV menu to "Antennae" reception and place antennae nearest to a window horizontally. Do your channel scan and you are good to go. Picture is much more clear than with cable as it is direct signal not on a broadband server. I placed mine on a wooden slat of a venetian blind in the window facing north and ran the attached wire along the wood slat and down the wall. Works beautifully. Instructions tell you everything and this little gem works the best out of the 3 I have had. Purchased more expensive ones, that do not work this well. I was certainly surprised! The previous reviews were right on the money!

The Best $3 I Ever Spent

Customer review by Moxxi

We recently canceled cable as the prices were ridiculous and no one was even watching TV anymore, except for the occasional Seinfeld rerun - plus we run Netflix and Popcorn Time so really, cable companies, you better bring me a decent service. I was in Dollarama today and noticed these RCA Refurbished Digital Antenna's for $3. Seriously! $3!! I like to tinker and thought I'd have $3 worth of fun and see if our bedroom TV could pick up, what the locals affectionately refer to as "Farmer Vision". It took about two minutes to put together - it's extremely easy. It'll take you longer because you'll think you're doing it wrong. I thought I'd have to run it through my HD PVR but that didn't work, so I plugged the RCA antenna right into the Cable input of my LCD RCA TV. Then you have to go to your Menu settings on your TV and set the receiver to Antenna rather than Cable, as you're using an antenna - cause that's what this thing is. Next you do an autoscan for channels. I got 4 on my first try and they were pretty good. But I thought I could do better, so I luckily had more coaxial cable and a coaxial connector (to make the coaxial cable longer so you can attach two together - Radio Shack or The Source has these, as does Home Depot - they're very small and are really just two female ends that you plug the coaxials into). I ran the antenna over to the window and taped it (with the silver striping facing out) onto the window. I did a rescan and got 6 channels this time and the HD channels look seriously better than when I was running my PVR with HDMI. The signal says I'm getting 1080i and it's unbelievable. I'm not getting amazing programming, but because we're Canadian, I receive HD feeds of the 3 top Canadian networks (Global, CTV, CBC), a french channel, The 700 Club Channel (religious programming) and an SD feed of a duplicate channel. My wife is more than pleased! I can't believe this $3 thing worked so well! Definite must buy! I should also mention I live about 15 minutes outside a major centre (but we have high speed and HDTV) - can't wait to see what I pick up when we move to the big city next year!

When Direct TV dropped the local fox station, I had to get an antenna to attach to my LG flat screen. I got this unit, wondering if it would work. I got home and found that it demanded a bit of assembly. Two wings, side bar, and the central unit with the cable attached. All one needs is pretty good eyes to read the small print instructions and a small Philips screwdriver. 3 screws get loosened, the parts fit right in, and then tighten back up, and hook up the cable to the antenna jack in the back of the TV. I used 5.75" of silver duct tape to attach it to the top of the TV, where it's almost completely out of sight. After going through the menu on the TV, it scanned the antenna, and it located about 15 signals, of varying clarity. The fox station comes in 5 X 5. That means, it don't get no better. I am very happy with this unit. Unfortunately it's inaugural performance was tragic. Both the S. F. 49ers and the S. F. Giants lost. But I'm not going to return the antenna. There's always the next game.

I got rid of cable a few years ago and I have an hdtv and was using rabbit ears antennas but was constantly moving them around to get a clear signal. I finally got so frustrated that I decided to get this. Who would believe something so flimsy and cheapy looking would be the best antenna I have ever owned!! At first I positioned it close to the ceiling and I couldn't believe how many channels it picked up EXCEPT for my favorite news channel which I did get but lots of static. I thought I could live without that channel but I couldn't, so the next day I played around with the antenna again. When I took it down from the wall I was standing on the side of the tv and suddenly my channel was clear and perfect. Sure enough it doesn't not have to be high above the tv. I have a low shelving unit with a lamp next to the tv so I placed the antenna on the wall behind the unit so it is partially hidden and now I have all the channels and my favorite. I am so happy I bought this. I ordered another one. Thank you Walmart!!!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

After reading reviews on this flimsy plastic "bat' and how well it worked, I decided to give it a shot. We have a room not wired for cable and we have tried using a $50 antenna in there wth absolutely no luck save for a few stations that would come in grainy and static ridden and cut out sporadically. This little antenna was the last resort before we gave up and called the cable company to wire the room. Well, it arrived and I assembled it in less than 5 minutes, hooked it on to the TV and voila!! 31 channels, all super clear!! We had thought the other, expensive anntenna had not worked because we are in an urban area and near an airport, but this little "bat" does not seem intimidated by that at all;-) I placed it on the wall behind the TV and it works wonderfully. you may need to experiment a bit with positioning, but once the channels are clear, they are locked in! I rarely review, for under $20, this product definitely is a great buy! In fact, I ordered another one for a friend and she is just as pleased with the results.

RCA Digital Flat Antenna
11/29/2010

Customer review by DrLogic

4.0 stars 11/29/2010 by DrLogic

This antenna is a suitable replacement for rabbit ears. Even so, there's a few things to be aware of before you buy it. PROs: Reasonable reception range, matches color and sheen of most of the new HD TVs, easy setup, fairly easy assembly, easy to mount. CONs: Not designed to be portable, flimsy, must be assembled (although only requires 4 steps), Not adjustable, must be kept away from interfering TV and other EM sources. I installed one of these for my sister-in-law in Dallas-Ft Worth area in Texas. Assembly was a tiny bit tricky. Just be sure to hold the enclosure on a flat surface with screws pointing up. Then lie the 3 pieces of the antenna in place one-by-one as the directions show (lining up letters A to A, B to B and C to C). Then put the top half of the enclosure over it and then flip and screw, but not too tight. A small nail is all it takes to hang it on the wall, since it's so light. Put it as high and as far away from TV set as possible. She now gets 31 crystal clear HD channels, but some channels do fade out every once in a while.

I was skeptical paying $15 for this flimsy plastic thing when my $40 Philips antenna downstairs has some issues. But after seeing good reviews on Amazon, I figured why not? We needed this for our new 40" Samsung C670 model HDTV on the second floor. The assembly was awkward, and once assembled, the antenna looks like a Batman toy. Very cheap and flimsy, but once we hooked it up and scanned for channels, it found signals that my more expensive Sony Bravia with a more expensive antenna couldn't find. Totally impressed! It's important to note that I laid it flat (horizontally) behind the TV and it worked like a charm the first time. I expected to have to move it around a bit or change it's direction, but everything just works. Highly recommended.

I decided to receive network television for when I wanted a break from Netflix. Since network TV isn't something I would watch often, I didn't need anything crazy...I just wanted to be able to watch the news or a show now and then. I therefore looked at the least expensive options. I read the reviews for this model, which were across the board... almost the same number of good reviews as bad reviews. When I got to the store I took a while deciding between rabbit ears and this flat model. I decided to go with this one because it would look better, and I figured that if it didn't work, I could just return/exchange it. I brought it home, put it together (lots of reviews say the assembly is tricky, but I didn't have any problem with it. If I had to assemble another one it would probably take two minutes). Anyhow, I hooked it up. It picked up all stations I was expecting and more. The local stations had great quality. I live within 20 miles of the city, so I'm within adequate range for good reception. Also, my first floor is about 6 feet above ground level, which probably helps a bit. The antenna does the job I wanted it to do, and I didn't pay a lot for it.

Did not want to rent a set top box for a TV that we hardly ever use. Was skeptical about this, but decide to give it a try since it has gotten such great reviews (here and Amazon) and can't beat the price. I also got the GE amplified antenna (3x the price) to compare. It picked up 29 channels! Depending on where I put the antenna, I can pick up some other channels (the international channels), but then loses some. I compared this to the amplified. The amplified did not pick up any more stations (same behavior, depending on where I put it, it would pick up a slightly different set of channels). The amplified did *slightly* better in that the picture came in more 'clear' on a couple of the stations, so the signal I think is stronger due to amplification, but it didn't pick up any 'more' channels. I decide to keep this antenna and return the amplified because of the price and the pictures came in plenty clear on majority of the channels with this passive antenna. The additional cost was not worth the slight improvement on a couple of the channels and that we hardly ever use this TV.

My husband and I purchased 6 different antennas (some of them over $100), and NONE of them were able to pick up all of the main channels at once. Finally, we decided to try this cheap-o antenna which looks like a paper airplane and feels about as sturdy as one too. We stuck it up on the wall, and surprisingly it worked like a charm! We are finally able to get all the main channels without having to adjust the antenna. The picture is clear and the sound is excellent. I guess more expensive doesn't always mean better quality.
